Cataloguing grants

This funding strand of Archives Revealed provides grants of up to £45,000 for archives to create catalogues of their collections. Archives Revealed aims to ensure that significant archive collections, representing the lives and perspectives of all people across the UK, are made accessible to the public for research and enjoyment.

Upcoming deadlines
The cataloguing grants programme is currently closed but Phase 1 of Round 5 (expression of interest) will open for applications in autumn 2021. Successful applicants will then be invited to submit a full application in Phase 2 in early 2022.

We are looking forward to talking to applicants from all types of archives about their proposed cataloguing projects. To discuss your application ideas or the ways we can help, please email us at
